    How or what kind of software does everyone use to check for dead pixels and is there an amount where it is ok for retail shops to sell?

    I dont' know there may be one, but I've never heard of it. I just manually look at the screen with several different screens to see if there are dead pixels. Since its an external problem and not part of the internal parts I'm not sure how a program could check, if there even is such a thing.
    Hope this helps.

    Somebody in this topic suggested to fill the screen with three different colors: Blue, Green, Red and Black. This is the most effective way to notice any dead pixels. However, how do I turn the WHOLE screen blue or green? I have tried using Paint, but this does not maximize to full screen.

    You could try a movie or somthing that can be played in fullscreen. A PPT presentation might work as well.

    Take that paint-generated 'image' (does a solid color constitute an image?) and use an image view - say ACDSee - which has full screen viewing to blow it up.
